Aussie hip-hop trio Bliss n Eso have treated fans with the announcement of their seventh studio album, The Sun, and their brand new collaboration with ChillinIt, OGs.
The track brings together the iconic legends with contemporary Aussie talent, to fuse together their musical styles in one explosive, spitfire track. Speaking of the collab, the trio share: “Watching this dope hip hop scene grow over the years with so many new styles and cultures exploding with expression is truly inspiring. ChillinIt is part of the new wave or rappers hitting Australia that we thought really connected with our sound. We had a classic moment on stage at a festival where ChillinIt jumped up during our set and the crowd went wild. The energy and the way we connected felt really special, so we decided it was only right to hit the studio and put something real down. OG's is the aftermath of that experience. 🤙”
"The song is a nod to the OG's, BlissnEso leading the way, and in a way now passing the guard, paving the road for the new wave. It's a cool song, they’re cool people too." ChillinIt adds.
The Sun is set to feature a variety of collaborations, with appearances from UK grime don Dizzee Rascal, New Zealander one-to-watch Kings, Australian music royalty Kasey Chambers and more to be revealed. The album is set to comment on the current state of society, bringing a moment of hope within their music. The trio will also be releasing a number of limited edition merchandise items, including translucent vinyl with Spot UV packaging, brand new outwear exclusive to this album drop, and twenty eight exlusive 'ultimate bundles' that feature a Serenade video from BlissnEso.
“On one of the first days of recording for The Sun, a Rainbow Lorikeet fell from the sky with an injured wing and got tangled up in the bushes right outside our studio. The bird reminded us of our rainbow winged angel that has graced all our album covers throughout our years. The angel is a symbol of embracing a full colour spectrum of creativity and harnessing your dreams with the power of positive thoughts and actions. This bird falling from the sky was like a like a beautiful gentle reminder of this and where we came from." the trio say. "We went out to the garden and picked it up, brought it inside, gave it food and water, nurtured it, and helped it recover. When it was well again, we set it free back into the wild. That bird was like the music, we picked it back up, we nurtured it, brought it back to life and set it free again.”
The Sun is out August 27. Listen to OGs below.
